Ferrari is one of the world’s most iconic sports car manufacturers, known for producing some of the most thrilling and high-performance cars on the market. In recent years, the company has also started to explore the world of electric and hybrid cars, as part of its efforts to reduce emissions and increase efficiency without compromising on performance.
Ferrari’s first foray into the world of hybrid cars was the LaFerrari, which debuted in 2013. The car features a hybrid powertrain that combines a 6.3-liter V12 engine with an electric motor, resulting in a combined power output of 949 horsepower. The car is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in less than 3 seconds and has a top speed of over 217 mph.
In 2019, Ferrari introduced its first series-production hybrid car, the SF90 Stradale. The car features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that combines a 4.0-liter V8 engine with three electric motors, resulting in a combined power output of 986 horsepower. The car is capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 211 mph.
Ferrari has also announced plans to launch its first fully electric car by 2025. Details about the car are still scarce, but Ferrari CEO Louis Camilleri has suggested that the car will be a “grand tourer” rather than a pure sports car, indicating that it will focus more on comfort and luxury than on raw performance.
Overall, while Ferrari’s electric and hybrid cars may not offer the same level of raw performance as its traditional sports cars, they still represent a significant step forward for the company in terms of reducing emissions and improving efficiency while still offering thrilling driving experiences.
